i'm told by various NC sources that the analog throttle keys, as well at the regular throttle keys work for the phoenix, drasticallyincreasing maneuverability. i am inclind to believe them having seen some crazy bananna shots in my day how is it rich? where did i say that i didn't think the lancer should be effected by the change? as far as i am concerned it counts as a 'rocket' besides... are you SERIOUSLY trying to paint the lancer as OP here? because it's not. base design has seen to that and i also reject your premise that because small group wants to sit in a base and hunt sunderers means that i either need to hoof it 300m on foot, or accept the base as lost. the phoenix was built with a drawback. the user being vulnerable. the fact that they can circumvent that on every base on every continent, and still effectively hamsting an assault force otherwise behind cover seems quite a bit more powerful than being able to do AT MOST, 970 damage to the rear of your precious vanguard... which has 4k hp so at most i need to reload 2 in there at least. plus the obligatory requirement of line of sight. something the phoenix does not need.
